Vladimir Waltham | cello
A prize-winner of the 2016 International Bach Competition, French-born cellist Vladimir Waltham is much in demand as a soloist and chamber musician on modern and baroque cello as well as viola da gamba. He plays a cello by Nicola Gagliano kindly on loan from the Jumpstart Jr. Foundation. Vladimir’s various ensembles have garnered many prizes, notably his Linos Piano Trio, winner of the first prize and audience prize at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition 2015 and of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Frost Prize for an outstanding young ensemble. Vladimir lives in Berlin with his family and spends his spare time cooking or hiking.
